Catch the gondola and reach the top. It is divided onto two stretches, but for some reason the second stretch was closed when we were there so couldnt really enjoy the snow capped mountains as closely..
Return trip per head costs Rs 200 for the first stage.. The timings are I guess 10-5 PM..They are strict about the ticket times.. though there are som many ppl up there for the return trip at the end that the retirn trip usually extends late.. It takes about 10 minutes to reach the first stage point.. called Kongdori
The cable car itself is a 2/2 module with glass fronts so ppl can enjoy the view.. It is advisale to sit at the front while going up and sit facing the downward side while returning to get a better view. Though the ride is pretty smooth, it jerks a lil at the metal poles which come after every 10-15 seconds
My suggestion is to go early and return early to avoid queues while returning and also enjoy up there for more time.
Here are some beautiful pictures of Gulmarg. There are many beautiful spots, just watch out next tips.
